These are the latest.... and apparently last upgrade kits for older 2012/13 Samsung Smart Tv's, such as my 55" ES8000. A great way to keep my TV up-to-date for another year (Sort of)!!!
Ignore early reviews as all issues have been solved through updates

I could try to explain it all, but it .... But Samsung say it better.....

Keep your Samsung TV at the cutting edge of televisual technology and upgrade to the latest hardware and software without replacing your equipment with the Samsung SEK-2000 2014 Evolution Kit.

Television technology evolved

Built to be the pinnacle of home electronics in your living room, Samsung televisions are designed to be at the very forefront of innovation and entertainment. With technology evolving and improving exponentially these days, it can be tough to stay ahead of the curve – which is where the Evo Kit comes in.

Allowing you to quickly and easily upgrade your current Samsung television, the SEK-2000 2014 Evolution Kit simply plugs into the back of your current model and allows you to take advantage of the very latest version of smart TV software.

In addition, the SEK-2000 features a powerful Quad core processor which improves your television's performance and makes for an even more enjoyable viewing experience.

Easily enhance your entertainment

Compatible with the 2012 LED ES7000 series and above, the 2012 PDP E7000 & E8000 series, as well as the 2013 PDP F8000 and LED F7000 series and above, the 2014 Evolution kit is easy to install and helps to enhance your home entertainment with the minimum of fuss.

Multi-Link Screen

Samsung Multi-Link Screen splits the viewing area of your TV into two separate screens. While you watch TV on the left side, the web browser can take over the right half of the screen to search for results based on what's playing on the left side of the screen or for you to browse the web freely. Watch TV while catching up on your favourite social network or researching your next holiday with this amazing feature.

Ensure you stay at the forefront of home entertainment and keep the technology in your living room at the cutting edge without the need to replace a thing, thanks to the Samsung SEK-2000 2014 Evolution Kit.

Other than the split screen thing, isn't this just a smart TV box. Seems expensive if that's all it is.

No, it's a processor upgrade with the newer more intuitive interface. It also comes with the new Samsung Smart Control, described by Cnet in May 2014 as "The Samsung Smart Remote: Hands-on with the best TV clicker yet"

It's a comprehensive upgrade for compatible older sets and despite your concerns at £79.99 I think you have to remember its original price was anywhere from £179.99 to £299.99 on Appliances Direct - which I'd agree is a tad expensive to say the least!!!

they wouldn't need this crap if they just went quad care android like my £40 stick I have plugged into my smart Panasonic TV. Now it's a REALLY smart tv no more worrying if iplayer updates or this updates oh and it has FLASH on its browser too. I'll never buy a smart tv again for its smart features.

What stick do you have and is it easy to access NAS drives via dlna?

Been considering for a few weeks but mixed reviews on lots of them.

Agree. And I doubt any mainstream mfgs will be keen to introduce full blown Android that can be updated, into their TVs. They don't want end users to be able to extend the life of electronics further than what they deem necessary.

Does this upgrade still lose demand5 ?

oh my I've been waiting for this deal now I missed it
